    Are you going to fix the dead blink spots in every map and remove the cooldowns on nurses power anytime soon? Nigh unplayable. Also, Screaming Banshee skin for Nurse when?

    In this patch a lot of your reasoning was based around survivor's fun and frustration but you never mentioned the killer's fun and frustration you only brought up a small emblem change for killers which doesn't effect fun so why is there nothing else for killers? Is killer fun ever thought about at all lately? Because it doesn't feel like it.

    Will you fix the hitboxes for the survivors.It is a very big issue and i like playing survivor but it's literally impossible to play/escape

    Are there any plans for looking at overall map balance? Things like the Badham and now Lery's rework are nice, but the biggest problem in this game I feel from most players is map balance. Maps feel too big for most killers, while also possibly containing complete dead zones for survivors. Not to mention things like exit gates being close together for EGC. I feel like maps could do with something like a size crunch but add more clutter/loops to make it so mobility doesn't feel as needed.

    Why close maps like THE GAME ,HAWKINS AND LERRY are still in the game ?Ow and SHELTER WOODS?

    I hear that David King is to be featured in the next tome. You wouldn't make us do a no mither challenge... would you? 😧

  • SziosisSziosis Member Posts: 198

    With the way Ruin is being changed, my only question is: Are you guys going to be looking into how fast most games go with survive with friends or is it something you guys haven't really found out how to balance yet?

    With the new ruin rework will we be seeing changes and/or buffs to other slowdown perks to help compensate for the power vacuum ?

  • NamelessNameless Member Posts: 780

    Will there be more maps given the Lerys treatment where you don’t rework them simply for balancing (like badham) but also to make them visually more appealing. You guys did an amazing job with Lerys btw.

  • Will something be done about matchmaking in the new patch?

    It's kinda frustrating to play as 50 hours killer against a party of 4 survivors with 1k hours each.

    How did you come to the decision to focus on David, Jane, Doctor and Spirit for this tome? Doctor kind of makes sense but the others took me and others by surprise.

    Was your approach in improving Movement Extrapolation with removing survivor moonwalking intentional? Or was it necessary? Moonwalking has been a gimmick in this game for me almost the whole time. It has no unfair advantage ingame and its rather something that kept the game interesting for me. I do it every game already subconscious. There has to be other solutions in improving the movement without removing moonwalking. Don't take away our toys!!

    Since ruin was nerfed because it was used in 80% of matches, when can we expect nerfs to the most used survivor perks like borrowed time, decisive strike, adrenaline and dead hard?

  • MisterGein213MisterGein213 Member Posts: 31

    When brainstorming changes for Ruin, what other ways to change it were tossed around before going with the increased progress reduction?

  • ArxaionArxaion Member Posts: 104

    There seem to be staple perks on either side that, for all intents and purposes, are only used to counter a lack of viable mechanics.

    Hex: Ruin is used to slow down very quick generator progression.

    Sloppy Butcher is used to slow down overly altruistic teams.

    Enduring + Spirit Fury is used to counter the mass amount of pallets on some maps.

    Borrowed Time is used to punish the killer for making what would otherwise be an ideal play, due to a survivor being unhooked so close to them.

    Spine Chill is a big counter to all killers with a small terror radius.

    Will we eventually see all of the perks become standardized with their respective missing or underdeveloped mechanics fixed, and the lesser perks revamped to be more viable? I would really like the majority of perks to have a viable spot in builds, without perk load-outs relying on some of these common ones.

    Will you guys be looking into the emblem problems certain killers face? The Plague and The Shape come to mind.

    Was it harder for devs to re-do all the textures on the Lerrys map or rework the badcham preschool?

  • yermomyermom Member Posts: 155

    The Oni has cooldowns to activate and deactivate blood fury, as well as demon dash, resulting in a lot of time being lost. The player could make up for that lost time by skillfully using demon strike from within demon dash, until the turning speed was changed. The turn angle doesn't seem to be helping this issue, either.

    So, I'm wondering what the development team is trying to address by changing the Oni's turn angle, instead of turn speed? Are there any plans to make the Oni's power more unique, and useful than it currently is?

    I really like play on killer but it's so stressful all time play vs SWF become gen's pop way to fast ... Without ruin who makes repair slower at game start, any killer who don't have any map pressure will lose game at start...

    Any plans remove bonus of repair? reduce pallets number or increase repair time of gen's?

    (Why update so survivor sided... if at this moment its more/less balanced if not use over-power adds...)

  • underlord99underlord99 Member Posts: 1,030

    Will we ever see data of how many people play survivor compared to killer?

  • Drag0n100Drag0n100 Member Posts: 34

    In light of the Ruin change, have you ever considered applying the old Ruin effect with Unnerving Presence? I think it would be an interesting way to show the perk some love.

  • DecarcassorDecarcassor Member Posts: 651

    Why where the Doctor's add-ons barely touched for his rework ? Some of them don't really make sense with his new kit and the changes to Snap Out Of It.

  • toxicwraithtoxicwraith Member Posts: 14

    What were the reasons for reworking the lerry map and doctor, and is doctor the only one to be reworked or to suspect more reworks on other killers and perks

  • winzer102hwinzer102h Member Posts: 1

    Please better hide your totem. (In most games, totems don't last two minutes.)

    Totem is on the road to nothing. another totems is located generator.

    it's so easy to find. in this case, it is too easily broken totem perk.

    Doctor add-ons ("Restraint"-Class and "Discipline"-Class and Obedience "-Carter's Notes) will not work after snap out.

    Because the Madness stage is 1 (new patch: Succeeding Snap Out of It will return Survivors back to Madness I.)

    Again, you have to spend a lot of time to get the effect.

    snap out skill check is so easy.

    But the effect of shock therapy is too low. (basic effcect : madness increase small..)

    This is nerf and harsh treatment.

    1-what is causing the matchmaking problem because the dedicated servers are supposed to quickly find the game.

  • PhaeliticoPhaelitico Member Posts: 3

    Since Ruin is supposed to be better at late game and usually don't last more than 3 minutes per trial, there is going to be some additional changes to the perk? Like allowing to kick generators so you can use Perks like Pops or Overcharge or stop being a Hex? I believe that when attempting to do change one Perk, you guys changed an entire varieties of perks gameplay without noticing.

    It's oddly the first time that have perks that doesn't work when put together like Surge and Ruin.

    Even when you mix No Mither and Unbreakable you gain the extra speed bonus from Unbreakable with the Unlimited lift ups from No Mither.

  • RuncoreRuncore Member Posts: 328

    With current rework of Ruin that is supposed to be late game hex, will be there any totems rework like spawn places so it will be harder for survivors to find it?

    will the hex totem mechanic see any changes in the future?
